Re: Your Favorite Teacher(s)

I had a few really great teachers in high school, and plenty of bad ones. One of our computer teachers was pretty well a modern-day hippie. During the summer, he would go out in the woods and just chill out there, without soap. He taught insanely well and we became good friends outside of the classr...

Re: What is your favourite book?

Favorites are hard to come by for me as well. Out of the many I have read, and many I still need to read., I have a tie strictly within fiction. Non-fiction, I have no favorite. Thank You for Smoking - Christopher Buckley Survivor - Chuck Palahniuk I don't know why, I simply enjoyed Survivor more th...

Re: 1984 (Or Nineteen Eighty-Four)

Interestingly enough I think if we followed the state to it's logical conclusion Oceania would become a better and better place to live. When Newspeak finally becomes universal, and English is forgotten Heretical thoughts would become impossible, as would doublethink. In doublethink you have to be ...

Re: Recommend a book

I've read plenty of excellent novels in my short time on earth, my favorites being Survivor from Chuck Palahniuk (in fiction) and My War by Andy Rooney (non-fiction). Survivor is about the last member of the fictional "Creedish Death Cult" telling his life story into a flight recorder over...

Re: Explain your avatar!

My avatar is reflected by my unavoidable future as a politician, and I will undoubtedly be faced by a witty sign similar to the sign in the comic that my avatar originated. (http://xkcd.com/285/)

Re: Internet Censorship in U.S.?

Really? Then that's totally misleading. I mean, why don't they mention public school filters at the same time, while they're at it. The general public does not have access to these systems, either. Children use these systems, and there are plenty of sites that children do not need to see. With the ...

Re: What were your dreams last night?

I had an extremely long narrative type of dream which began with the nuclear destruction of mankind and my fleeting attempt to survive it. (There was an epic plot to this part, but my memory has decayed to such a point I don't remember it). I almost didn't until I stumbled upon a vault (I've been pl...

Re: Awesome Student Quotes

Our high school had one unique specimen of a student. His honorary nickname that he accepted wholeheartedly was "Big Hit." How he got this nickname is not well-suited to this thread. Anyways, he is well-known for saying some great gems: "My hands are like unicorns: sometimes they are ...
